Tip #1 - World of Warcraft


Today's tip deals with World of Warcraft. It's more of a tool than a tip. What it is, it's a map of Azeroth that uses Google Maps API. Check it out!


Review: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas

by Dustin Harman

Rainbow Six: Vegas is the latest in the Tom Clancy shooter series for the XBOX 360 and PC. It's single player consists of many well designed levels, most of which are in Las Vegas, NV. They follow the same style as the previous Clancy games, requiring stealth and skill to get through them. The learning curve on the game is very good and within no time, you will master the controls. It's similar to the default presets on most PC and XBOX 360 FPS's.

Though the single player is nice, the multiplayer is where this game really shines. The levels are chunks from the levels you encounter in the single player mode and with an 8v8 game, you'll fall in love with the action-packed, stealthy, skillful gameplay.

The graphics in this game are the only part that I wish were better. I haven't played the PC version of the game yet and can't comment on those but on the XBOX 360 version, the graphics are definitely not that of a next-gen game. They don't look bad at all from a distance and anyone getting the game for the actual gameplay won't mind them at all. If you walk up close, however, you can clearly see pixilation. The 360 and PC can definitely handle higher definition bitmaps than that. Other than the graphics (which still don't look bad), this game is amazing. Definitely a must-have for all followers (new and old) of the Rainbow Six series. Overall, I give the game a 9/10 only losing a point because of the graphics.

Ok! So I Nuked My Site!

Ok! So heres the deal. About a day or two ago I accidentally nuked my Word Press site, and now we have moved temporarily to blogger again.

If you are seeing this then it means you are ok, because I have re-pinged the feed to point to here for the time being.

Starting Monday December 18th, the show will be on. Expect a show every day with a brand new trick.

If you don't have a news aggrigator, you might want to get one. Here are two popular applications: Feed Demon and NewsGator.

So here is a re-cap for those of you playing at home. There will be daily shows starting Monday, December 18th, and I will be posting game stories to the site here.

We will again try to get a new Word Press site going, but for now we are back on blogger which is at, so there you have it. If you want to send a story in, then e-mail me one at tiredthumbs [at] gmail dot com.

I look forward to being back and operating. If you see this then I have re-directed you.
